Reputation changes are constantly out of sync with SO account:

This is how it first look on my SO account: my SO account reputation tab

This is the reputation changes I see in the new bar (which I opened later) : reputation changes in the new bar

shouldn't the reputation changes in the new bar show only "new" notifications? (that wasn't read somewhere else, in this case - it shouldn't show anything..).

This happened to me multiple times today (even if I opened meta an hour after I already saw the change in SO).

It should clear on all browsers when you open the achievements dropdown on any site in any browser (via websockets). I'll be tracking down why this isn't working today.

If you have websockets blocked, that's another issue, and you won't see it until the next pageload - but I believe the clear case isn't working across browsers currently...I'll get to that this morning since it'll get annoying fast.

Note: It should not clear when viewing your per-site reputation profile, that's not a network-wide number and is a different number.

  • @Yosi a fix for reputation clear that syncs all sites with the new top bar is rolling out now. It'll be more effective once all sites have the top bar of course, but that shouldn't be too far in the future. Nov 15, 2013 at 11:46
  • good, and it's not a critical bug, then it's more then ok.. Nov 15, 2013 at 11:47
